Back in the day WHRF shared an office with the Cincinnati Police substation on the corner of Hemlock and McMillan. We moved out and set up our own digs and now the officers at the substation get a chance to try out a new space of their own. Starting in mid-December, the police substation will be moved to 921 E McMillan (better known as the Red Point).
“That area of McMillan has been improving as far as safety goes,” said probation officer Nick Kern, one of the officers who will be working out of the new substation. “We’re excited to be there and to help continue that positive transformation.”
The Red Point was once a center for drug activity, and WHRF worked together with the Cincinnati police to get it shut down. In less than a year, a storefront which was once a hot spot for crime will become a hot spot for safety. The old sub-station location will be improved to attract a new ground-floor retail or office tenant. Now, that’s progress!
